    I am glad to be here. Awesome cite. I just started smoking and i have smoked twice now. Everything taste good but I have a problem. I am not getting much smoke flavor inside the meat. I have a gas smoker and i smoked my pork at 190 degrees for about 12 to 13 hours. I used hickory wood chips and i even added more chips to the box through the process. I feel like i am not getting alot of smoke from the smoker itself. i even have the vent almost closed all the way. any ideas would be appreciated.
     
  2. Welcome! I assume you hail from Nebraska?
    What kind of smoker do you have?
    I think 190 is too low. Not that it would have anything to do with smoke.
    Try using chunks of hickory or logs.
    Or stick around here. I have learned a lot already and I'm new here too. Not new to smoking, but new to the forum.

    My smoker is a Great Outdoors smoky mountain series from menards. i spent 150 bucks on it so i would think it would be half way descent. Right now i am using wood chips from menards. should i be using something bigger.

    I find using chunks works better in my GOSM. I get lots of good smoke flavor. I usually have all 3 vents on mine about 1/2 open.
     
  7. I think so. But if you are bound to using chips, I think I would soak them for an hour or longer and wrap them in a ball of foil and poke some holes. That's the only I've ever had any luck with chips.
